Just a quick FYI. I have a Hood Roller Furler and wasn't pleased at all with how difficult the jib was to furl in heavy wind. Did one of those "last resort" things and actually picked up the literature on the thing and started reading. Low and behold it was recommended that the thing be set up with 7/16 FURLING LINE! This stuff is very different from the other running rigging on my Islander 30 BUT once in place it was easier to hold onto AND turned furling the jib into a pretty easy task. DANG IT, I hate to admit that reading the directions actually helped......
